    As long as Harry Reid doesn’t join any anti-Mormon groups, pays his tithing, and doesn’t try change the doctrine or to get people to leave the Church, he’s not in any danger of excommunication. Getting a recommend to attend the temple is another matter. He has to be honest in his dealings with his fellowmen, but his answer to that question is between him and his bishop, and the Lord. The LDS Church is careful to not tell its members how to believe politically. We are “taught correct principles”, and then expected to govern ourselves according to those principles, the greatest of which is love for one another, and for our Savior.
    I personally believe that Harry Reid’s mind is not what it used to be. Some of the things he’s saying sound like they’re coming from an addled mind. Perhaps dementia is setting in.

    “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” — Barack Obama, October 30, 2008. Truth which no one believed at the time. This is the most important truth he has spoken, mainly because few people understood it at the time. I did, and my blood ran cold. I knew what we were in for, but no one was listening.

    “The Constitution provides that an amendment may be proposed either by the Congress with a two-thirds majority vote in both the House of Representatives and the Senate or by a constitutional convention called for by two-thirds of the State legislatures.” According to the Federal Register, anyway. 2 ways to amend the Constitution. Stop slamming the A-Maizin’ Blue!

    Well, after slogging through HumphreyHP book, I think there’s a simple answer. The Constitution provides for the federal government to determine immigration laws. That’s been done. We have many laws on the books about who can come here and how. It’s the Executive Branch’s mandate to enforce the law, all the law. The Executive Branch has patently decided not to do that. Only the laws they like get enforced; they don’t like the immigration laws, so they don’t get enforced. Clear so far?
    Each state has the right to protect its citizens from attack, danger and harm; that’s why we have National Guard units in every state. Send the majority of each state’s NG to the border, catch the illegals as they come onto US soil, and take them directly to ICE. If any of them are let go, catch them again and take them back to ICE. Either the ICE will do its job and deport, or the illegals will get tired of getting picked up every few days and go home. There is no excuse for illegals to be here, other than the Executive Branch refusing to do its job.

    “There’s no doubt the president has the leadership and stature necessary to call upon the American public to rally around the kinds of ideas that are in the best interests of the country,” Josh Earnest said.
    If he had any ideas that were in the best interests of the country, I’d be happy to rally around. But I haven’t heard any yet, and after 6 years, it’s not likely that I will. Just tired of the flim-flam and dazzling footwork.

    Yep. There’ll be one under every bridge.

    Actually, the ‘skin’ is just the part of the potato that was in contact with the dirt and dried/hardened. Same with other ‘root’ vegetables, like carrots and turnips. There is nothing special about it, nor are all the nutrients next to it. It isn’t a ‘peel’ in the same sense as fruit and above ground vegetable rind. You can peel or not. All you lose is some of the potato.

    He also played Zorg in “The Fifth Element”, one of my favorite Bruce Willis movies.

    Parents sending their children here only makes the problems back in their country worse. Children are the future of any country, and with most of their children here, there is no incentive for people to work to improve their own countries. We can’t take all the world’s children, and it isn’t right that we should be expected to. No other country in the world allows people to come over its borders against their laws; try it and you’ll end up in jail and facing immediate deportation. We are setting a very dangerous precedent here, one that Obama is working hard to set. Bringing down the United States of America is a tough job, and it can only be done from the inside. Saving the USA can only be done from the inside as well.

    Paladin, you are SO not helping here! Not all Democrats are “complicit” in what the government is doing, and many are angry about it. But, at this point, there is little they, or you can do about it. The government stopped listening to all of us peons a long time ago, because we let them, liberals and conservatives alike. If you can’t be constructive in working out solutions, at least stop wishing death on those you disagree with.

    And I’m a 60+ grandma who worked for decades to raise my own children and grandchildren. I don’t feel the need to raise someone else’s children as well, especially when those children have families who can do the job better than I can in their own countries.

  • [1] June 16, 2014 at 10:27am

    These are not orphans who have no one to care for them, or no family members in their home countries. These children need to be sent back to their families, not adopted here. Doing what you suggest only encourages people in South and Central America to keep endangering their children with false hopes and human traffickers.

    Because most people in Hong Kong speak the Queen’s English. Duh.

    This (or something very like it) will be available at Walmart in another few years. Any improved technology comes with a high price tag at first, then comes down as more companies get in the market and competition takes over. The Motorola brick is the perfect example.

    The dialogue on this site is regressing into a blame game. To the Christians out there: ease up on the he!! and d*mnation stuff. We are all children of a loving Heavenly Father, who loves all of us, including those who don’t believe in Him (yet). The scriptures say that “every knee will bow, and every tongue confess”, but that’s not going to happen until He comes back. Until then, we are commanded to love one another, do good to each other, bear one another’s burdens and pray for each other. And there are no conditions attached to those commandments. We are not to decide who to pray for, who to help or who “deserves” our attention. Every one of God’s children is to be treated as Christ Himself would treat them. He never turned anyone away, or refused to help when asked. Members of the Sanhedrin were no different to Him than the lowliest Samaritan.
    An atheist group wants to start a TV channel? More power to them. If their programming is boring or doesn’t speak to the needs of enough people, it will fail. If there is interest in the channel, then there is a need it is filling. Either way, they stand or fail on the merits of their message, just as Christians, or any other group, do. Is your message one of love? Are you following the example of Christ, who you claim as your Savior? Then do His works, and increase the love and decrease the power of the adversary in the world. Railing and contention are not of Christ, nor of His people.

    It’s not the Blaze doing it; they’re doing it for d’Souza, who reverences the name of deity. It is a common way of writing the name without actually writing it out fully. Stop stressing out over inconsequential stuff and focus on the real problems the story is telling us about.

    This website, http://www.michigan.gov/documents/mdch/Michigan_Minor_Consent_Laws_for_Sexual_Health_292774_7.pdf, gives the conditions for consent by and notification of parents when minors are engaged in the healthcare system. Generally, parents must be involved in children’s care, except for a few instances. Unfortunately, that only applies to providers who are not in the Title X federally funded system (i.e. Planned Parenthood). Title X providers don’t have to tell parents anything, and are only to “encourage” minors to tell their parents.
    So if your provider is not part of Title X in Michigan, then you, as a parent, still have rights. For now.

    This is hardly a “normal” wedding gown. More like a “statement” piece made by some art student in New York. It’s a tasteless bit of fluffy schlock. And the piece trailing on her right shoe simply points to where this thing belongs.

    This is typical of the government troglodyte worker. It’s OK, because it didn’t use taxpayer funds. Really? Government workers, unless I am mistaken, are taxpayers. Their donations to charity are from their salaries, which are paid from money taken from taxpayers. The money the private sector earns and is taxed on, even though laundered through the Fed and gov’t workers’ pay, is still taxpayer money. Every penny collected, used, laundered and paid out by the government is taxpayer money. What’s not to understand?

    As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of Man
    There are only four things certain since Social Progress began.
    That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,
    And the burnt Fool’s bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire;
    And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
    When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins,
    As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn,
    The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!

    We can’t escape reality, no matter how hard some people try. There are immutable laws at play here, and just pretending they don’t exist only causes problems. Your right to be offended stops at my right to speak. And vice versa. Anything less is tyranny.
